Read the text and accomplish the post-reading tasks. Effective Career-Planning

1. One of the pursuits the humans waste major part of their life on is career. Career planning is not an activity that should be done once, in high school or college and then left behind as we move forward in our jobs. It is not a hard activity, not something to be dreaded or put off, but rather an activity that should be liberating and fulfilling, providing goals to achieve in your current career or plans for beginning a transition to a new career. Career planning should be a rewarding and positive experience. 2. A successful career cannot be achieved overnight. Every fresh graduate will have to go through a lot of sacrifices just to make sure the career path is according to plans. In essence the career success depends on the competence which is a combination of knowledge, skills and attitudes. Before one embarks on the long journey of a working career theres a strong need to acquire knowledge and education. The objective of the career path is to seek progress and growth which brings satisfaction and widen the professional horizon by adopting new skills to deal with changing situations. 3. Of paramount importance is building a personal brand that means how others perceive you. The most important thing is to build your reputation and the trust of others in you. Your brand is more than your job title, it is about how you get things done and also the way you carry yourself and interact with others. Moreover, building a circle of influence is essential for the career growth and success. It is good to learn from others and share knowledge for mutual benefits. Additionally, an attitude of open-mindedness is the right way to sustain the career planning. A major component of it is setting short-term and long-term job goals. Once this process is initiated the career planning becomes reviewing and adjusting to the social changes and trends. Having information about career trends is vital to long-term career planning success. 4. The key to an effective career planning is exploration of new education and training opportunities. Information really does lead to power and success so one should never pass up chances to learn and grow more as a person and as a worker. Therefore, part of career planning is going beyond passive acceptance of training opportunities to finding new ones that will help enhance further professional evolution. So, be conscious about setting goals. A career goal helps you to stay focused and motivated. It must be flexible since there will also be disappointments and things out of your control. Your career goals will change with alterations in your environment and personality. Reevaluate your goals every two years and make adjustments as needed. If you don't have any future plans, it means you are drifting and will miss many opportunities along the way to be the best you can be. Your career will always have a learning curve. Make the most of it and when you find that you are not satisfied anymore, sit down and reevaluate your position and career goals. Nr 1. Items Answer the question.
